Giveaway: 60 Quick Knits from America’s Yarn Shops

Congrats to winners Rebecca and Jeanette!
Sorry for the unannounced hiatus in giveaways over the holidays! My daughter has been out of school for two weeks, which means I’ve not been doing much knitting or much writing about knitting.

But the good news is she’s gone back to school (grin) and I’m back to work with a great giveaway this week: two copies of 60 Quick Knits from America’s Yarn Shops.

If you know about the 60 quick knits books, you know they’re a collection of lots of different patterns using Cascade yarns, in this case all Cascade 220 and 220 superwash. These are great, inexpensive, versatile yarns that come in an amazing variety of colors, so within this already wide selection of patterns you have even more room for individuality by choosing your own colors.

There will be two winners who will each receive one copy of the book. To enter for your chance to win, add a comment to this post before the end of the day Sunday, January 12. Since it’s the beginning of the year, tell me if you have a craft-related new year’s resolution. (Doesn’t have to be about knitting.)

Thanks for visiting and good luck!

    I work at a library and would love to put these in our collection for our patrons.
    They would be of awesome use!!!!

    Honestly my resolution is the same as it was last year, to finally finish all the knitting, crocheting and craft projects that I have started and abandoned. In an effort to make this happen I committed to blogging about it for motivation. Thank you.

  3. Stephanie says

    I MUST use up more of my stash- lots of single skeins in there.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I don’t really do New Year’s resolutions. It just seems like setting myself up to fail. I do, however, intend to knit mainly from my stash.

  5. G. K. Green says

    My resolution is — slightly sheepishly — to finish my resolution from 2013, which was to get organized enough to be able to find everything knitting-related (not just yarn, but needles, stitch markers, tape measures, blocking supplies, books, patterns, gauges, row counters, etc.). I made a good start by cleaning out a linen closet to devote to knitting-related items, and I got all my yarn sorted and in one place, but the rest is “pending” (as they say). Thanks for the giveaway! Happy new year to you …

    I don’t have a craft-related resolution. I feel like that would suck some of the fun out of making things if I have too many “shoulds.”

  7. asteride says

    I love to knit but this year I would really learn to sew. I’d like to make something easy and simple.

  8. Charlotte says

    my crafting resolution – get the rest of Arne & Carlos’s Christmas Balls done before next Christmas. Only 12 finished so far with the last 9 using Cascade 220 fingering weight.

  9. Judith (from Israel) says

    As usual, I’ve resolved not to buy any more craft supplies until I use up the lifetime supply that I’ve already bought.

  10. stephanie says

    i would love this. Im a new knitter and i have been looking for the perfect books, i think i could really use this book. please pick me

  11. says

    I plan on getting all of my WIP and putting numbers on them. Once I do that, I will put the numbers in a bag and pull a number out and focus on that WIP until that one is done. So it’s all up to fate on what is going to get done and when.

  12. Lorinda says

    This year, I would like to begin making items for people I love and have a “stash” of completed items ready so no one will have to wait for me to finish a gift.

  13. Cheryl says

    Trying to use my stash and finish some
    projects that I have started.
    Please count me in for a chance to win.
    Thank you

    I don’t like to set specific resolutions for the year, however I’m forever starting new projects and I’m determined to complete many of my UFO’s throughout 2014. This book looks wonderful. I’ve been in the mood for knitting…something about the cold weather! Lately, it’s been simple scarfs with interesting yarns. Fun and easy for end-of-the-day pick up!

    I am finally going to knit the afghan that my son has been begging me to knit for him. Yikes! Now that I’ve said it out loud, it will really have to happen.
